Young Bella is in her first national qtrs against much older nnz towering over her.
Jasper looks nervous too.
This is jasper,s first qtrs.
They get the first pt.
They lead 7/5.
They reach 11/9.
They get back the lead 18/17.
20/18. Bella misses a smash. Now deuce,
Jas smashes the girl to get 1/2.
They trail 6/8.
NZ gets to 11/8.
They need to fire up.
Too many mistakes from anxiety.
They lose the set 21/12. Good experience for the young ones who can play again next year and for Bella for the next 4 years.
Jas is sitting down looking dejected. I go over and console him.
We do a selfie for his parents and he manages a smile.
